In 2020's first episode, Yuzvendra Chahal interviewed fast-bowling pair of Navdeep Saini and Shardul Thakur in the famous Chahal TV episode. Chahal, who was left out of the playing XI for the second T20I in Indore, made sure he stayed in action with his Chahal TV. After the match, Chahal interacted with teammates Saini and Thakur. Chahal complimented Saini's bowling but termed the pacer as 'yorker queen'.
